Tue, July 18, 2017: Trump says he ‘won’t own’ collapse of healthcare bill, plans to let Obamacare ‘fail’

The Republican bid to repeal and replace Obamacare  collapsed on Monday.

Trump was prepared to shoulder no blame for the failure of the bill on Tuesday, and warned he would now simply let Obamacare fail.

“We’re not going to own it. I’m not going to own it. I can tell you the Republicans are not going to own it. We’ll let Obamacare fail and then the Democrats are going to come to us,” Trump told reporters at the White House.
